Looks like Volkswagen Beetle will have its RS version, which is going to feature a high-performance turbocharger kit with bigger intercooler, larger injectors, CAI and of course ECU re-map.

The exterior is dramatically changed, actually, 2012 Beetle RS looks like Porsche GT3 RS, which is not bad, at all.

Still, the project car doesn't have plates and registration, so it will be created as autoshow concept. The tuning team didn't have enough time, because the new Beetle Rs had to be presented to dealers this week, so that they can see, what can be done on the new car.

2012 Beetle RS stands on VMR710 20" x 9J ET35 wheels  fitted with Continental ExtremeContact DW 245/35 ZR20 tires. The suspension is also improved – H&R from Golf VI GTI. The vehicle is fitted with a Borla exhaust for better performance and sound, of course.

Stay tuned for more information!
